Lane got a lot of driving fever from his driving our maroon 944 from the side walk to the back of our side yard putting it through the gears ,and driving his grandmothers
PEANUT allover with his friends at I think 14 years old ! All the boys would have fun calling out the names of more euro cars every where we went!
good broadcast ! The word Lane is LAQUER ! We would use minimum 5 coats light color sanding in between each coat and then final buffing ! Looked great but bird poop,walnut sape and age was a big downfall!
As Lane knows I grew up in the Los Angeles area !In the late forty,s on we had probably the biggest variety of cars in the world running around the streets! As I got older !954 we moved to the Pomona valley where we had the Pomona drags (WINTER NATIONALS) Don Garlets , Mickey Tompson , Aldona etc. We also Riverside raceway, SCCA, Pomona swap meet (L A Fairgrounds ) Sport car racing (Pomona Fair Grounds.) Classic car meets ,Rallies, Gymkhanas (Auto cross ,Coupe circle track, Destruction derby. So we had a Hugh selection of cars and car events. Looking at cars like you are making on video's and live events are the only way I enjoy them!
good show ! Very big difference in 356 to a bug. I had A hopped up 1955 vw bug/sunroof /semaphores/nerf bars / abarth four stinger exhaust engine work by a friend who was a factory trained Porsche /vw/Mercedes mechanic .I bought this car from him ran circles around my 64 convertible drove many 356s no comparison .
good show- you guys were pretty much right on the drive system question. I would like to have a 911,914, 944 and a audi 4000 quarto-gt coupe and you would be ready for any thing after driving these cars.
you forgot the whole pick-up truck industry no longer a simple work horse that goes for ever with nothing going wrong and passed dow3n in familys along with its ten cvoats of house paint pep boys replacement mirrors ,4 different bands of tires,the drivers window stuck down and a pine atr fressner hanging inside. but you jump in rain or shine it still starts and hauls all the shit. good show the old D KW are thre e cyl. cars neat bodys and were pretty fast
your final consciences made the most sense with the way the prices have been changing ,if nothing else he could gain on the amount of money he had to invest on a993.look how much the market for the 914 has changed in the last few years. good podcast.
liked the show ! some of the people living in sun river Oregon had hangers at their homes and a few had sea planes and landed on the river. D W A ELECTRIC& DINNING>.Tell Brian they put MYLAR COVERING ON THE WINGS. used on gliders and push set ups. one of moms friends married a really nice guy who had to go to the navel school in Monterey he flew with the BLUE ANGELS.
enjoyed this broadcast. Since you have talked about recalls on cars a couple of times , I have to tell you about a couple on the dodge cars and trucks when I worked for the gas co. in L A. 1964-1971 . Our trucks started having a problem where all of a sudden the engines would go full throttle and it was happening to most models of cars and trucks from chrysler .the return spring for the throttle linkage was hooked to the exhaust manifolds and would break, but instead of shutting off the went full throttle. we had large rubber band on new gas meters on our trucks to hold paper work on each meter so we would jerry rig the linkage and go back to the base. I saw a lady come off the freeway in a dodge sedan the engine screeming,she went through the the island in a gas station back out into the street and flip the car and the engine died. another problem on the trucks was brake drums would crack across the break area ,so when you put on the break it would cut into the brake shoe on the one brake .I almost went off the freeway down the side of the mountain. the third thing was the rims started cracking and they had to replace them .so the recalls arnt new and them not advertising the problem isn't new,like the explosive pintos.
good show ! there were jaguar X K E s really fucked up in the great car crazy 80s.they would take them into a local body shop to have the platforms worked on usually about a rust problem .and when they were through they handled like shit . the platform would be completely out of wack . they had to be put in jigs to keep them true while being repaired..
Loved this show,Brian the saabs had that timing chane set up through the 900 series.You had to release the tentioner while holding the chain with a wire hook(made from a cloth hanger or have you) not that bad. I went through that whene I rebuilt the engine on my 190SL in 1966 plus buy metric tools etc. I had to get manual through Mercedes about $100.00 and still put the new oil pressure valve in backwards a d had to have the crank hard chromed and turned to standard the second time and that was two trips from Pomona to Costa Mesa. Owik note them Meyers Manks and Devin body cars were built in Costa Mesa,i got to drive several of each.
very interesting show. having grown up in L A I drove all the places you mentioned hundreds of times but I moved to santa cruz in 1975 .we could drive from Pomona to laguna beach in 45min. balls out!! spent much time at Pomona drags ,racing through the vineyards ,san Gabriel mountains,riverside raceway.i also can understand about your dad listening to you lane doesn't really like me listening to driving while awesome.the thing you both have to understand it keeps us younger having had you guy talking like this with each other in the house.its also nice to know how much you taught them and their friends. I have had about 75 cars in my life and my boys have been able to drive and wrench on many makes. any way enjoy your show ,keep up the good work
